Emery set to spend considerable money on the footballer during this summer. Tottenham and Man United are also keen to sign him, and there will be a battle for the player.

Oliveira joined the Catalan club from Bordeaux in 2018 with a €40m deal. He has a huge potential and can become a world-class winger if he continuous improvement. In this campaign, Malcom played 24 games, scored four goals and made two assists in all tournament.

Brazilian forward has contracted with the Blaugrana until 2023, and his release clause is around €40m. He also named in the Selecao line-up during the international break, which is already a big success for the attacker.
